I fell in love with the chandeliers. They do not send overseas. He/she must take it with her. I enjoyed looking at the incredible creations. At the entrance is a blue Glass creation that must be over six feet high. Beautiful picture frames.

we went to see Murano - one of the most known islands near Venice to experience how glass sculptures are made Fascinating is the blowing process the Artist performs but the most impressive element is the speed in which one of the souvenirs is made

We stumbled across this small glass factory during a rainstorm, and it was a wonderful way to spend a half hour or so. For 3 euros you are treated to a breathtaking demonstration of Murano glass blowing. We saw a horse, cat, vase, and fish...More

We loved the quick little presentation and how true Murano glass is made. Well worth the trip and the few euro they charge. Do not forget to fully wander around. See the town square!

One man explained what was going on, while the other blew, shaped, and textured multiple pieces of glass in a matter of minutes. So cool! Would happily have paid way more than the €3 they charged to watch.

no sure of times, but tours last 30 minutes to an hour. I took the tour from the hotel monte carlo, it was free. They pressure you a lot into buying.
